I had to go to Lunenburg today to see a client, and afterwords I walked around and took pictures. Twas the kind of day that puts smiles on people’s faces.
I’ve just added several of today’s photos to the Lunenburg page of the Photo Album. I love Lunenburg – the steep hills overlooking the harbour, its history, the generations who have lived there. It’s special.
Additions to the Nova Scotia Photo Album include a new section of photos of Stonehurst and Blue Rocks (they were formerly lumped in with Lunenburg), and some new photos in the Lunenburg album. I’ve also added to the Joggins pictures in the new Bay of Fundy Shore section with photos formerly in the Annapolis Valley section, including those of Baxters Harbour and Cape Split.
I’ve left the Minas Basin pictures in the Valley section, as it is such a part of life in the Valley, but I’m not sure I should. What do you think? Blomidon has its own section but there are many other Minas Basin pictures that I could put in the Fundy Shore section.
In the old days when people travelled by water, the Fundy Shore was all of a piece. Nowadays we tend not to associate Joggins with Hall’s Harbour, because it’s several hours by road.

Some new photos added: I was very pleased with the photo of the church in the Grand Pre National Historic Site that commemorates the expulsion of the Acadian settlers of Nova Scotia by the British in 1755. There is also a moving set of bronze statues of an Acadian family that makes you wonder if they’re all going to get on the same ship. Many families, tragically, were split up.
I just added a few photos of The Ovens, near Lunenburg, that my mother took last summer. More new pictures to come!
I’ve just added a new section called “Fundy Shore” with some photos my mother took of the Joggins cliffs which are full of fossils and home to a popular museum. Also there are some new photos of Lunenburg, notably of Bluenose II as, loaded with passengers, she gracefully left her berth and headed out to sea, absolutely dwarfing the other boats, including ours, that were moored in the harbour.
There are also a few new pictures in the Panoramas section.
